In yoga, mudras are important. While they might not sound like or look like much, they can make a huge difference in how our energies flow through us.
Mudras according to Yogi Times are something derived in word from Sanskrit. The word means ‘sealing in the energy.’ They are basically hand gestures and finger gestures that enhance our experiences in meditation and yoga as a whole. There are different ones for different things and well, when you know which ones to you it can really give you an energetic advantage.
In this article, we will be going over the Kubera Mudra. This mudra is one that is very important. According to Yoga.LoveToKnow.com, Kubera, the word itself is also Sanskrit which is something you will find quite common when it comes to things of this nature. However, this word stands for the name of an important ‘Lord of Wealth.’ When meditating or doing yoga this mudra should be used when focusing our energies on things like abundance and working to achieve more in life.

Each finger used in this is symbolic the thumb represents forcefulness, the index finger represents growth and the middle finger stability. When we bring these fingers together, we are able to work to transmit energies into the universe that help bring about prosperity.
Yogapedia wrote as follows explaining a little about this mudra:
Kubera mudra is a hand gesture (hasta mudra) used in yoga to focus on abundance and prosperity – both spiritual and physical. The term comes from the name Kubera, a Hindu demi-god of riches, and mudra, which means “seal,” “imprint” or “gesture.”
To practice this mudra, begin in a comfortable seated position like ardha padmasana. With palms facing up, bring the tips of the middle finger, index finger, and thumb together, while folding the ring and little fingers into the palms. Rest the hands in the lap or on the thighs.
